Thoughtful estate planning often includes accomplishing the objective of ensuring that money and property remains in the family. Consider the scenario where one spouse passes away leaving a spouse and children. The surviving spouse may start seeing someone else or get married. In either case, the money and property is now at risk of going to that new partner or spouse. If the spouse gets married, there are marital rights that endanger you [the deceased spouse]’s assets. Further, that spouse has death rights to claim against the estate of the deceased surviving spouse. In all these cases, there presents risks of money and property not going to your kids or other designated beneficiaries.
